Going Through Changes

If you are one of our local disc golfers you may have noticed that the Disc golf course has gone through some changes, everything from cleared fairways, tree trimming to new holes.

Since the start the plan was to have two full 18 hole courses at the resort. Last year we finished the first 18 but ran out of time before the busy winter season to finish the second 18. Since the winter season ended earlier than expected this year, this gave our Mountain Operations team a head start on the new course. There was a lot of planning involved but they just could not come up with a location for another full 18 hole course. This is when they decided to split the current course and add new holes to form two separate 18 hole courses. 

The First of the 18 hole courses begins in parking lot 4, throwing uphill adjacent the driveway.  This course includes 9 completely new holes and the old holes 1-9, which are now 10-18. The new nine holes are shorter than some of our former holes yet still technical. The longest of the nine is 444ft while the other 8 are in the 200-250ft range.  This 18 hole course is a great warm up game before starting out on the other 18 hole course which will consist of old holes 10-18 and 9 newer holes.

The Second course is still being built but should be completed in the next few weeks.  This course will include previous holes 10-18 which zigzagged throughout the ski trails and had drastic elevations changes, uphill and short downhill drives. The added nine will include some of the same elevation changes along with challenging wooded and open holes. Don’t be fooled this course is very technical and you will be relieved when you reach hole 18.

With the additions to the courses, we now believe that we have something for every type of player. If you are looking for a quick game then the first 18 are great, but if you are looking for a more challenging course then the second 18 is what you should check out.  So when you get the chance stop by and play a few rounds.
